Vacaville-Elmira Cemeteries

Midway between Vacaville and Elmira, on a piece of land once belonging to Arcules C. Hawkins, lies the Vacaville-Elmira Cemetery, founded in 1852. The cemetery land was deeded in 1866 to the Free and Accepted Masons Lodge, No. 134, to the Vacaville Lodge No. 83 of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, and the Christian Church by Hawkins. In 1928, more land was added to the cemetery. Records of the burials were taken from various sources: cemetery maps; early death or burial permits; Funeral Home Record books; Recorder's Office Death Books; local newspapers; Daughter's of the American Revolution (DAR) surveys done in 1936 and 1956; a Seeley Survey done in 1975 by Jean H. Seeley; and finally three local history books.

Abbreviations for place of birth or death: approved US Postal abbreviations.
